Don't get caught up on the " tastes better" concept... totally subjective and of the opinion of less than a half-dozen people who have posted. I think it's a bit too soon for a PBC to totally take the throne away from a UDS (even though a PBC is basically just one persons variation of a UDS)
"tastes Different".. I can buy that, but " tastes better" ??... depends who is doing the cooking and tasting.
